    Millions of unknowable occurrences have happened before the occurrence which brought YOU into the Universe happens. Think Butterfly Effect

    Millions of unknowable occurrences will have happened before the occurrence happens taking YOU from this Universe

    The unknowable occurrences between the two determine the length of time YOU have between the two

    Some occurrences, those close to YOU, you will have some influence over. Millions YOU will not. Yes I am emphasising YOU

    Those occurrences YOU do have influence over make them the one's which lengthen the time between. YOU are not King of YOUR castle but have influence in its running

    Many people broadcast to YOU details about occurrences YOU have influence over. Details, when followed, help smooth running of castle

    Many people include parents, teachers, first responders and others. This advice is given to help prevent YOU becoming a graphic. Ignoring said advice increases YOUR chance of becoming a graphic. Heeding said advice decreases YOUR likelihood of becoming a graphic

    Graphics have left the Universe

    Who (?) are graphics who have left the Universe? Graphics who have left the Universe are those who frequently have need of first responders and frequently make news

    The news they make comes with warnings along the lines of "Warning contents of video (photo) contains graphic content" YOU being the graphic

    Becoming a graphic, apart from being utterly devastating for YOURSELF, is devastating for others

    Universe is, even with COVID-19, a great place to enjoy

    Try hard not to leave as a graphic

    Speaking as one who spent many many hours helping those who almost became a graphic

    Except, perhaps, when going on a first date.

    Those of a certain religion find while people can have fun with those helmets they also do not work all the time

    Wait. I get it. That's funny!

    Most accidents occur within 15 miles of home!

    That's funny!

    I'm not sure what the OP means by "don't become a graphic".

    I think the word he's looking for is infographic (a graphic that contains useful visualized information about some subject),
    And I think what he means by that is what most people mean when they say "don't become a statistic".

    But he will come here and say "NO" and then correct me.

    Yes I will

    NO

    The answer is in the original post

    Here is answer extracted from the original post

    Who (?) are graphics who have left the Universe? Graphics who have left the Universe are those who frequently have need of first responders and frequently make news

    The news they make comes with warnings along the lines of "Warning contents of video (photo) contains graphic content" YOU being the graphic

    Don't be a graphic on the news video or a graphic in a newspaper picture

    Edited to add - graphic was specifically picked - statistic, in my view is a bit overworked in safety campaigns

    Don't become a statistic - a bit non connective

    Put a video / picture with graphic content and "don't become a graphic" much more visual connection. Looking at a burnt body in a car or a body on the road covered with a sheet, people are more inclined to visualise those images as being them as opposed to just becoming a statistic

    There is more but that would mean going back a bit to my experiences as a Safety Training Coordinator on Off Shore Oil Rigs
